The Greatest from the great library of dreams

Mr Jim Moon is now unquestionably the stuff of podcasting legend. His knowledge, enthusiasm, inquisitive nature and the sheer delight he takes (and passes on) in the many strange and arcane topics he covers makes this one of the best podcasts out there- there is a reason Hypnogoria has lasted so long with ever increasing audiences.....

The Home of Horror!

Fan of the weird and the wonderful? Listen to the inimitable Mr Jim Moon’s dulcet tones as he takes you on a journey through the history of horror, the paranormal, the downright strange and every so often “The Natural History of the Batman!” a personal favourite. With over 400 episodes to choose from you will be spoiled for choice! Mr Moon fanatically researches his subjects and speaks with such an authority you know you are listening to a level of quality rarely seen by an independent podcaster. Truly terrific!
